The Register interview with Jon
[url]http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/02/07/opera_founder_its_all_gone_to_crap/[/url] Note the comments below the article which show long-standing users of Opera are now drifting away to find alternative browsers. Sadly, nothing in the article suggests that Vivaldi is planning a new browser although that is why many of us are currently hanging around here. If the only thing on offer is an alternative to MyOpera I will be very disappointed.
Wow! Bold title for that Interview. Almost a title that only Chuck Norris could get away with putting out there.
Speaking for myself, I'm not here in hopes that Jon is secretly developing a new Browser and that we'll soon see a Beta version or something. I'm just here in hopes that the Vivaldi Community will eventually be what MyOpera was.
Of course, Jon is welcome to surprise us with a new Browser.
I must admit that now seeing it in black and white, it does concern me some that if I understood correctly, Jon is funding Vivaldi by himself.
Jon is funding Vivaldi by himself.
Pure rumor: I believe the money comes from Vivaldi Invest AS which is 100% owned by Jon - afaik, don't sue me if it is wrong.
I was just going by what in the article sure is presented as a quote by Jon. Whatever the case may be, let's just hope the funding is solid and Vivaldi has a good, long run.
The interview was enough to make me join here.
Looks like interesting times ahead… :cheer:
